One December afternoon, boy with dog and grandfather with beard take a walk to watch the sun begin to set over the river. When the sun drops low in the sky, they start home. Buildings grow dimmer. People are rushing. As nature's lights go out, one by one, city's lights turn on, revealing brilliant Hanukkah, Kwanza, and Christmas displays in streets, homes, and stores. A stunning picture book that's sure to be a winter holiday classic by Caldecott Medalist Uri Shulevitz.

About the Author:

Uri Shulevitz is the author and/or illustrator of many books, including The Fool of the World and the Flying Ship by Arthur Ransome, a Caldecott Medal Book, and The Treasure, Snow, and How I Learned Geography, all Caldecott Honor Books. He lives in New York City.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 1–The “boy with dog” and his “grandfather with beard” appear in a companion book to Snow (Farrar, 1998). The threesome take a walk in the late afternoon and witness a beautiful sunset before heading back to the city as the buildings and skies darken. The child feels that dusk is a sad time as it signals the end of day, but he notices the darkness is abated as the electric lights begin going on one by one. The diversity of New York City is revealed as the inhabitants, hurrying along to their varied destinations, are readying to celebrate a trio of holidays: Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Christmas. Appealing gray, purple, and blue watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations of dusk are contrasted beautifully by the orange, red, and yellow of the sunset and the holiday lights. Bookstores, signs, and a library in the background are all tributes to reading. The brightly colored lights of the various festivals show that, though dusk may be the end of day, it may also be the beginning of a magical, memorable night.–Maryann H. Owen, Children's Literature Specialist, Mt. Pleasant, WIα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
